what I wore Wednesday....

This week I have been working with my 
Charles Nolan red wool cape
trying out some options for the holidays
It's bold shade is out of my color comfort zone
but I loved the differentness of the piece
and decided to give it a try.

One easy solution
simply adding my Burberry fur collar...

Cozy and distinct for holiday night strolls...

Trying for a more casual and everyday look
I paired it with jeans
and a menswear stripe shirt...

It's still a big piece with a whole lot of color...
not quite my favorite everyday vibe
but 
certainly has some holiday zing!

Still trying to bring down the color intensity
I put a brown knit over the shirt
I like the juxtaposition of the  brown 'glitter' shirt
with the menswear stripe
and jeans.

I layered several of my gold chains
vintage and new
to add a little sparkle 
and
 finish off the outfit

To get the necklaces to lay perfectly staggered
I just extended a couple of them to get the desired lengths

I did a DIY post on extending your necklaces here,
The short hand version
2 plyers +jump rings+ chain= your perfect necklace length!


Wishing you love and joy 
as you style your life




thanks so for stopping by
